Dr. Stephanie Martin is a highly accomplished OBGYN and Medical Director and co-owner of Clinical Concepts in Obstetrics, LLC. She’s here today to break down iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia for us.
This is such an important aspect of women’s health that is frequently overlooked, especially since testing iron levels isn’t a part of most women’s routine bloodwork. With one in five women of childbearing age having iron deficiency anemia, I’m encouraging you to check out GetIronInformed.com, which is a women’s health initiative that encourages women to learn more about their iron levels and how that can affect their health.
In this episode, we talk about the differences between iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia, what you need to know to advocate for yourself with your healthcare provider, testing for iron deficiency, symptoms of iron deficiency, and so much more!
